This exhibition has travelled to three other venues before Tate Modern: the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Kunstmuseum Basel; and Centre Pompidou, Paris.

Each installation was quite different, reflecting the different museum’s architecture, the curator’s views and the desire to create a new experience for each site.

London is the largest exhibtion  (the most works and space) but much as I like the installation we made here, my favourite stop on this tour might be Pompidou where Gabriel created a very striking display succinctly laid out in two factory-like lines. One line included large works like ‘La DS’ and the ‘Elevator’, and for the other, Gabriel placed smaller objects on market stalls. Here are some images of the various installations, which do you think looks best?

The whole family enjoyed this witty, clever and stimulating exhibition. We were particularly drawn to the photographs of the scooter. The children have plans to pay tribute to this exhibit by taking their bikes around London and photographing them with their 'twins'.... One of our favourite Tate visits to date.
